Forestry car park.. Down lane to Monarchs Way then short walk to field corner. Grid reference is in the hedge.mike.hoult09/08/2015
Parked in the forest car park to the west (ST55809 54145) – Down road for about 200m & then turned right into lane & followed Monarch’s Way. The SE corner of the field which lies against the county boundary (i.e the old stone wall) is surrounded by barbed wire. To gain access to the high point it is best to cross the stile in the hedge which takes you into the next field, and then walk up the side of the hedge to the corner. The wall & barbed wire are easily crossed, but beware of brambles, nettles, etc. (S)gerrybowes04/02/2015
